Drill press – center drill jig / fence.
Quick and dirty
I was just tired now of drilling holes in rods and always fighting to get it center, so I spend the time to make these two jigs.
The first are for short items, and can be clamped up in the wise.
The second are made wing nuts, so I can clamp it on the base of the drill press, and even use it as a quick and dirty fence.
When you use the jig, you lover the drill until the buttom of the V grove and center it, back up, and then you put what ever rod and drill the hole.
A full instruction tour can be found on my blog Drillpress table and much more! #1: Making the table, fence, and shelf pin jig (my tour de table) Blog
Where you also can find the instructions for building the fence, and clamps.
Hope this could be to some inspiration,
